It’s A New School Year!


Welcome to our first blog post of 2014-15! Our fifth grade class has been together for nine days, and we’re ready to start blogging and sharing our learning!

We’ve decided on our classroom norms. Norms are behaviors that we all—students and teacher—agree to follow. This year our norms are all “We will…” statements. We were inspired by a post from Mrs. Ripp’s class to create a Classroom Vision video featuring our norms. Here it is!

Did you notice the norm that said we will “choose kind”? That’s a precept we read about in our current read aloud, Wonder.

Here are a few more pictures from our first few days of school.

We practiced math with a QR code scavenger hunt.

Poetry Open Mic

We had our first Poetry Open Mic.

We solved a tricky math problem using big whiteboards.

Unifix cubes

We modeled multiplication using Unifix cubes.

We explored our new Chromebooks.

Fifth grade is great so far. We’re looking forward to connecting with others through our blog!

  5. Wow I loved our video because first of all I love how creative we all were,and second of all I liked how we had so much fun with this and they turned out great. Mrs.Hamman did a wonderful job on the video as well. Also how would this video help the people that see this understand how norms work if they didn’t know about norms?
    If you know the answer write a comment.
